There is a curriculum for everything out there. Yes, there is.
Today I'm handing my blog over to my nine year old son. I was going to write a review for an amazing new curriculum for Minecraft fans but I was told that I could not do proper justice to it. So without further ado, here is my nine year old son Marvin.
I home school. That means I go to school at home and can wear PJs all day long. Except when I have to go out. Then I wear my cowboy boots.
I used to go to regular school. But it was hard. Letters and numbers looked funny. Everyone else could learn but I couldn't. I felt dumb. I would come home angry a lot. Before I lived with my mom I lived with another family. I have something called Shaken Baby Syndrome. Mom also took me to some doctors who tested me for learning stuff. It was boring but mom says she learned a lot. The doctor said I should have some fancy word (mom says it's called modifications). But the school still wouldn't do what mom said. Boy did that make her mad. But I was just sad all of the time.
Then one day mom said I have something new to try. It was my first book by The Thinking Tree. It was so much fun!! I loved it. But then I finished it. Then mom found this book for me!! MINECRAFT!!!!
This book is so awesome!! It is written with special letters that make it easier for me to read. I get to learn about lots of neat things. I am studying China. I have made the Great Wall in my Minecraft world. It is my new favorite country.
I also get to watch documentaries. I watch How It's Made. I like learning how things are made. I have seen almost everything get made.
I read neat books too. Some times I listen to them on tape, but I like reading. I didn't like reading before these books but now I want to read everyday. I like it when mom sits down and we all read together. My little sister is blind so we read out loud a lot so she can have books to.
I also get to write things. It sometimes takes me longer but that's OK. I wrote all about a day in the life of a modern miner. Mom was surprised with how much I knew.
My favorite part is that I get to play Minecraft EVERY DAY!!! I take the things I learn and put them in my worlds. I have cool things all over.
I love this book. I can learn. I can do things and I feel smarter now. Thank you for making this book for kids like me. I'm going to see if I can play Minecraft now.
